their marketing plan. that cannot come soon enough. as for mitt romney late today he took this strong unequivocal stance saying, well, it's not the language i would have used. the guy who wants to be leader of the free world can't even stand up to rush llimbaugh. that is weak. and now for more on rush and the implications of the war on women, and other things, i'm joined by profession robert like the inside "the war room." >> i'm so impressed. >> we're glad to share tgif disposable recyclable-- >> i was expecting more. >> oh come on, this is "the war room." let's talk about rush for a moment. >> do we have to? >> just for a moment because i would like your perspective on a couple of things. one, you heard the discussion he was engaged in today just in that little clip about welfare. he was saying this was a new welfare program, and obviously you've done an awful lot in respect to inequality and supports that we don't have income disparity at the bottom. the interesting thing he calls providing contraceptives, it's from private employers sod hardly welfare, but he calls that welfare, and there is
the whole country and that is what makes it interesting. rick santorum has been going after mitt romney suggesting that on a whole host of issues he simply isn't a reliable conservative. h his record santorum argues proves that. mitt romney said well, i changed in many ways. when i was governor of massachusetts i grew and became much more conservative and you have to look at what i have done in the time since he was governor of massachusetts. and the way in which his policies have evolved. listen to the exchange with mr. santorum really questioning whether or not mitt romney can be believed. >> i think there is no question whether it is healthcare, whether it is cap and trade, whether it is bailouts, whether it is just the roll of government in your life governor romney has a very, very bad track record of being for government type solutions. >> now, romney counters that santorum very much has a similar record. that when was in the u.s. senate he south ear marks and brought home a lot of federal money, a lot of pork to pennsylvania and sort of a big government proconservative prounion r
-- if romney is it the nominee, he may be, probably will be, they need to grab the center and this brings in the base, is there any logic to why they keep talking this stuff up? >> well, i think there's logic to it although i think it's flawed logic. look, i have been convinced for the past two or three years that the republican base was going to turn out in november of 2012. they have been motivated by hatred of, animus toward president obama and i think that even though we've seen some poor turnout numbers in some of the primary republicans and caucus states, i think in the end the republicans will turn out. the white house believes the republican base will turn out strictly on the grounds they want barack obama out of office. susan makes the correct point, which is that republicans did think at the beginning they could win this argument on religious freedom grounds and they also thought they could extend the argument to try to make it look like president obama was trying to be too intrusive, government telling you what to do, a big government issue. >> here's the republican conundrum,
figured out. and frankly this is not a talk radio problem. this is also mitt romney's problem on the issue. mitt romney told mike huckabee he would support a constitutional amendment that would define a fertilized egg as a person. a personhood thing. even before mississippi voted that down, mitt romney said he would have supported that at the state level when he was governor of massachusetts. mississippi mississippi said no to personhood because it wouldn't just ban all abortion, a personhood amendment would probably ban hormonal contraception. he is all for contraception but would support personhood. >> you were on governor huckabee's show a few weeks ago one of the things that you folks talked about was that you would support a life begins at conception amendment. now, that would essentially mean banning most forms of birth control. 98% of american women including me, use birth control. so could you help me understand why you oppose the use of birth control? >> i don't. i'm sorry, life begins at conception, birth control prevents conception. >> what she is asking mitt romney is the right
is on the ballot. but only ron paul and mitt romney vote there. and then have you caucuses in states like north dakota, alaska and north eastern states, massachusetts, vermont, where governor romney is expected to do well. there is something for everyone. caucuses, primaries and lots of delegates and lots of opportunities. >> so a cliff hanger, in my sense on tuesday -- ohio for senator rick santorum and also speaker gingrich in georgeia. >> those are must wins. if rick santorum will win in ohio, he is leading in the polls and that's an opportunity for him to make an argument that he is the candidate who can take on mitt romney and barack obama. he had the opportunity in wisconsin, didn't get it done. ohio is a chance fora i do-over. for speaker gingrich, georgia is a must win. if he can't wane win, there is no rationale. and he has to win and dominate and have a spillover effect in the other southern states and do very well in tennessee and oklahoma to make an argument that you belong as a top-tier candidate. >> what a heartbreak for senator santorum and gingrich not on the virginia ballot. th
